Nominate outstanding volunteers: Local communities will get to have their say in nominating local volunteers in this year’s local health awards. The ‘Volunteer of the Year’ will be awarded as part of the Local Health District’s ongoing commitment to quality and safety improvement. There are more than 400 volunteers across our 39 health facilities that help out in a range of activities from gardening to running exercise classes and assisting in kiosks and hospital auxiliaries. To nominate a local volunteer from your local health facility, please contact your local health facility. A list of local health facilities can be found on the Health District website. The Health District is always looking for new volunteers, so if you’ve ever thought about volunteering, please talk to your local hospital.
